Founded in 1983 The Sportsman’s Charity has a reputation for running first-class events and distributing funds to a wide range of primarily Scottish charities working in the fields of sport, children and young people, disability and the disadvantaged.
Each year, the Charity identifies two partner organisations which will receive a significant proportion of the funds raised at The Sportsman’s Dinner.
In 2014 the two charities were Combat Stress, the veterans’ mental health charity, and the Scottish Golf Trust, charged with expanding and enhancing the game of golf in Scotland.
In 2015 the two charities are Capability Scotland, supporting disabled children and adults across Scotland, and Crohn's & Colitis UK, offering support to those affected by this disease as well as funding crucial research to find a cure.
As well as supporting some of the larger established charities, The Sportsman’s Charity takes a special interest in smaller organisations for which a modest donation can make all the difference.

Early estimates indicate around £75,000 being raised at the event - but watch this space for a further update.
